Been painting nids for a month or two now. Painting-wise they're a nice break from my Tau. Here's what I've got so far:










Currently working on 24 Hormies and a Broodlord.

I like painting them, but I don't know if they're for me. When I get done, I may be selling them to fuel some Forgeworld creations for my Tau army.

My lots of nicely painted nids, love the bio titan. 8)

i suppose i should post mine up here as well.

I designed it as a themed flying warrior CC army for 4th at 1,850. recently revamped it as a leaping carapaced army for 5th at 1,750 to make use of the run rule. out of the original list pictued below i loose one of the 3 zoanthropes with the changes.



my army makes me grin like a naughty school boy every time i rean an anti-nid tactica that tells the players to go after synapse creatures first to break the armies control...... >

Here's my Hive Fleet Mjolnir. About time it was shared; I made this Tyranids of Tau Online post years ago, literally! :P



The full army!


My Hive Tyrant. I'm quiet proud of what is perhaps my most extreme conversion thus far.




My Broodlord


Various shots.

Hello! Although I am no means a regular here (first post) I have been gaming for a few years. Originally I had a big Marines Army, but now I have branched out with some Nids. I got the 200 box set that came out with the new Rule book not long ago to get started, and since then have added another Box set and an Hive Tyrant, as well as a Lictor and a Zoanthrope.

Since then the army has grown pretty slow as various other hobbies drain all my money. I'm yet to play with them, as I am trying to build my gaunts up to 32 models each. I am lacking a little with my gaunts as I decapitated all the ones from Battle of Mccragge box set so I could stick the heads on the sides of my Marine Tanks... Oops.

Painting is also taking a while, so many colours and layers making up each model. Bleached Bone skin, Dry brush Snakebite and Graveyard over, Scorched brown carapace, dry brush Snakebite on it, Skull White around the edges, then gloss is. Purple and Pink for the fleshy bits, and Snakebite/Graveyard for the weapons. Red and Orange for the blades/claws, then little bits of colour here and there for effects on various models.














+1 for sharing a great looking army with us! ~Gada

That is quite a swarm of 2nd edition Nids! What is that huge Rancor looking model in the back? I've never seen it before.

+1 for sharing a historic collection with us, and welcome to the TO Forums!

That Rancor-esque model IS a Rancor. Converted, of some sort.
